at Sheerness is under the inspection of the Commissioner at Chatham j 
and the dock-yards at Deptford and Woolwich are under the imme-

officers witli salaries, for the dispatch of business : But all other offi- 
cers, both in the King's yards, and all others belonging to any of his 
Majesty's ships, hold their places only by warrant from the Lord High 
Admiral, or the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, 


The next department is the Victualling Office. The business of 
this office is to superintend the victualling of the royal navy. This 
formerly was done by contract ; but this method was subject to enor- 
mous abuses j for the contractors were attentive to nothing but profit, 
and the provisions were so bad, that many seamens lives were lost by 
using them. Seven Commissioners were appointed to manage this bu- 
siness J they have their respective agents at the several ports of his 
Majesty, both at home and abroad. They contract for the several 
Articles of food used in the navy, which they are obliged to inspect 
very narrowly j they oversee the bakehouses and breweries j accept 
of bills drawn in foreign ports by Pursers, for the supply of his Majes- 
ty's ships, and audit and pass Pursers accounts. 

The Victualling Office is situated on Towerhill j and here are a 
number of officers, clerks, &c. with fixed salaries, for the dispatch of

to their knowledge and skill in tiieir respective stations, and obtain 
certificates thereof from the different examinators, before their com- 
missions or warrants are delivered to them. Thus, all Lieutenants 
of the Royal Na\y are examined by the Commissioners of the Navy- 

All Masters are examined at the Trinity House, Water Lane,

This superb building, stands on- the spot where formerly stood the 
Royal Palace of several of our Monarchs. King Charles 11. intend- 
ed to build a new palace here on a very grand scale, and accordingly 
erected one wing of this grand edifice, but died before any other part 
of the design was finished. In this state it remained till King William 
III. formed a plan to make this palace useful to the kingdom. He 
therefore, by letters patent in 1694, erected this palace into art hos-

pital, foi: the reception of such seaipen, as by age, wounds, or other 
accidents, are rendered incapable of farther service, and for the wi- 
dows of such as happen to be slain in the sea-service. Parliament lent 
its aid to complete this noble building, agreeably to the first design, 
and Commissioners were appointed to see it executed. Benefactions 
were received for this glorious institution, amounting to L.58,209 j and 
Parliament, in the year 1716, bestowed on It the estate of the attaint- 
ed Earl of Derwentwater, then amounting to L.6000 a-year. A tax 
was laid upon all seamen in the Royal Navy, and in the merchants 
service, for the maintenance of this Hospital. In this Hospital, there 
are now 2300 inen, 140 women as nurses, and 150 boys*, and five 
more women as nurses to the sick. The pensioners are clothed in 
blue, and are allowed clothes, linen, stockings, shoes, and is. a week 
for tobacco. Some of these are bpatswains jnates, appointed to assist 
the boatswains ; these are 4istinguished by a narrow gold edging on 
their hats, and have is. 6d. per week for pocket-money. There is a 
boatswain for each ward in the Hospital, whose business it is to take 
care of the ward, see the men do their duty, and report any misdemea- 
nours to the Lieutenant-goverpor, and likewise to command the watck 
upon their guard j these have a broad gold lace round their pockets, 
cuffs and hats, and have half a crown a-week pocket-money. 

The boys also wear blue. They are taken in at 11 years of age, 
and go out at 16, either to the sea-service, or any other trade ^hey 

may chuse. , ^ 

The Governors of this Charity appointed by apt of Parliament, are 
the Great Officers of State, and persons in high posts under the King j 
the Lord Mayor, and the three senior Aldermen of' the city of Lon- 
don ; the Master and five Elder Brethren of the Trinity House; the 
Goverr)or andDeputy-governor of Greenwich Hospital. To these, his 
Majesty in Council is empowered to add such Noblemen and Gentle- 
men as he sees fiff'"'^' 

The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty n^me 24 gentlemen as 
Commissioners for the better government of the Hospital. The Offi- 
cers of the House form a Council, which meets once a-week, for the 
punishing of all breaches of rules ; appeals may be made to the Com- 
missioners, who meet c3nce a fortnight. The Govismors meet every six 
rnonths, or of lener, if occasion require it. 


• The boys admitted into this Hospital, ^re the sons of sailors, particularly of 
such as were slain In battle They were added into this charity by Lord Ayl- 
tner, when Governor ;. and the fund for their maintenance and education, arises 
from the money paid by each stranger who comes to see the Hospital, its paintings,

respective commands j and with him they correspond, and to him they 
make their returns and reports, (as well as j^to the Commander in 
Chief) and he lays the business before his Majesty, for his inspection 
and directions. All orders for marching, quartering, encamping, 
and recruiting the army, are signed by him, by his Majesty's com- 
mand y and all military commissions are made out at the War-Office, 
(Horse- Gxiards, Whitehall) and by him, or thc' Commander in Chief, 
carried fo his Majesty to be signed. The trust reposed in this officer 
is very great, as are the profits of his office, especially in time of war. 
He is always a member of the Privy-Council.

This office was one of the most lucrative in his Majesty's gift, not 
so much from the salary annexed to it, and the perquisites of office, 
but from the immense sums of money which formerly lay in their 
hands for a long space of time together, as the whole of the money 
voted by Parliament for the land forces passed through their hands. 
In the year 1782, this office underwent a reform, and the Paymaster- 
General was allowed a fixed salary of L.4000, and his Deputy a sala- 
ry of L.I 500 a-year, in lieu of all perquisites. 

The Paymaster-General is constituted by letters-patent, under the 
Great Seal. He Is always of the Privy Council, and in his office are 
a great number of clerks for the dispatch of business.

In ancient times the Kings of England used to hear and determine 
causes ; but it is. declared by law, that if the King cannot determine 
every controversy, he, to ease himself, may divide the labour among 
persons, men of wisdom, and fearing God, and out of such to appoint 
Judges. The Saxon Kings of England appointed a Judge after this 
manner, who was, in fact, the King's deputy. After the Norman 
Conquest, the person invested with that power had the style of Capi'' 
talis Justicioy or Justiciarius Anglice. These Judges continued 
until the erection of the Courts of King's Bench, and the Common 

The last person that had the office of Justictarius Anglicet was 
Philip Basset ; and he, for the better support of his high office, re- 
ceived an annual stipend of a thousand merks out of the King's Ex- 
chequer, at Easter and Michaelmas, by equal portions, as Hugh Bi- 
god his predecessor did.

Court q/ Kmg*s Bench, 289 

Of the COURT of KING's BENCH. 

This Court obtained its present name from the King sometimes sit- 
ting here on a high bench, and the judges, to whom the judicature 
belongs in his absence, on a low bench at his feet. This Court, in 
ancient times, was called Curia Domini Regis : and in the reign of 
King Edward I. a statute passed, by "which it was enacted, that this 
Court should attend the King, and follow him, so that he might- have 
at all times near him men learned in the laws, to do justice to such as 
might require it. It was afterwards fixed to be held at Westminster j 
and the judges took their oaths in the Court of Exchequer before the 
Lord High Treasurer. The judges of this Court used to ride to 
Westminster Hall on mules j but Sir John Whiddon, in the reign of 
Q^ueen Elizabeth, first introduced horses j but of late years they gb in 
coaches. In the reign of King Edward II. Hervey de Stanton, at 
that time Chancellor of th^ Exchequer, was appointed Chief Justice 
of this Court, with a special command not to resign the office of Chan- 
cellor, but to execute the same by some proper person, whenever he 
should be obliged to hear causes in this court. 'JThe Chief Justice of 
this court is always appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer, when that 
office becomes vacant by death, or unexpected resignation. 

In this court are tried all pleas between the Crown and the sifbject, 
of treasons, felonies, misprision of treason, and other pleas which 
properly belong to the King j and also in whatsoever relates to the 
. loss of life or member of any subject, in which the King is concerned, 
as he is a sufferer by the loss of the life' or limbs of his subjects. This 
court hath power to examine and correct all errors in facto, and in 
in law, committed by the judges and justices in their judgments and 
proceedings in courts of record ; and this not only in pleas of the 
crown, but also in all pleas, real, personal, and mixed, the Court of 
Exchequer excepted. It hath also power to correct other errors and 
misdemeanors extrajudicial, tending to the breach of the peace, or 
oppression of the subject j and to grant prohibitions to courts ecclesi- 
astical a'nd temporal, to keep them within thdr own jurisdiction ; and 
may admit any person to bail for any offence allowed bailabld by law. 
If a freeman of any city, borough, or town-corporate, be unjustly 
disfranchised, the party aggrieved may have relief here. It hath also 
power to hold plea by bill, detinue, covenant, promise, or other per- 
sonal actions" against any one in the Marshal's custody, or any officer 
or person belonging to the court. 

VOL. II.] 'tt ' • *The 

1 90 Court of King's Bench. 

The jurisdiction of this court extends all over England, and is not 
so subject to cbntrout as others, because the law presumes the King to 
be here in person. So supreme also is the jurisdiction of this couit, i£ 
any record be removed hither, it cannot be remanded back but by act 
of Parliament. 

The Judges or Justices of this court, are the Premier Justices of 
Oyer and Terminer and Goal-delivery in the kingdom : so that when- 
ever this court sits in any county, the commission directed to the jus- 
tices in Eyre of Oyer and Terminer, and Goal-delivery, are ipso facto 
void, without a formal revocation of commission. They are also the 
chief coroners of the land, aud therefore they receive appeals by bill, 
much rather than the sheriff and coroners.

Of the COURT of common PLEAS. 

This Court, in ancient times, was kept in the King's own palace, 
distinct from that of the King's Bench. But on the confirmation of 
Magna Charta by King John, in 1215, it was fixed at Westminster, 
where it still continues. In it are debated all controversies, in mat- 
ters civil, between subject and subject, according to law. Here real 
actions are pleadable, and fiines and recoveries suffered, and in no other 
court but this j it may also grant prohibitions, as the court of King's 
Bench doth. The Magna Charta proves its authority in these words, 
viz. Communia placita non sequantur curiam nostram, sed teneantur in 
al'iquo cerlo loco ; the Exchequer being the place where those causes 
were heard, and not any other court, until the confirmation oi Mafna 
Charta by King John. And by a statute, 28th of Edward I. it J* de- 
clared, lliat no filea xhall he thenceforth held in the Excbequen ^on- 
nary to the form of the great charter. 

Soon after the fixing of this court at Westminster, siich a^ultitude 
of c:inses were brought before it, that the King, for the greater dis- 


Chief yustices of the Common Pleas, i^y 

patch of business, found it necessary, instead of three, to constitute six 
judges, whom he appointed to sit in two places ; but at present the 
number is only four. They sit together in Westminster Hall, to hear 
and decide causes J but ' no coUnselloi^ can plead for them under the 
degree of a Serjeant, ■ •-••-■ ^ -

// .81 3Hi/l i^X— 

The Court of Exchequer is one of the four great Courts of the 
Kingdom, and is held in a room contiguous to the north-west corner 
of Westminster Hall, and is so named from a chequered cloth which 
anciently covered the table, where the Judges and Chief Officers sat. 
This Court was first erected by King William the Conqueror, for the 
trial of all causes relating to the revenues of the Crown j and in the 
same Court there are now also matters, of equity between subject and 
subject. In this last, the Lord High Treasurer, or the Chancellor 
of the Exchequer, presides, assisted by the Lord Chief Baron, and the 
Barons of the Exchequer : But the judicial proceedings, according to 
law, are oftly before the Barons or Judges of the Exchequer j and here 
before them are tried all causes relating to the King's revenue j such 
as are concerning accounts, disbursements, customs, and fines imposed. 
The Judges of this Court are called Barons, viz. one Lord Chief Ba- 
ron, and three other Barons. They are styled Barons, as in ancient 
times Barons sat here by the King's appointment to try causes ; but 
in latter times only mfen skilled in the. law have been ap^ointejfi Judges 
in this Court ; and they still retain, the Jtitiejpf^aren^ . '* ^. 

To this Court appertains another person called" a Baron^ viz. the 
Cuvsitor Karon, who sits in Court with the other Barons 5 but is no 
judge, liii ollice being only to administer the oath to thesheriifs, under- 
sheriffs, bailiffs, searchers, surve^povs, and other oiBcers of the Custom- 

When at any time the Barons are of different opinions concerning 
the decision of any cause, they call to their assistance the Chancellor 
of the Exchequer, who decides in favour of one of the parties by his 
castinij vole.

• The TaHy*court in the Excheqaer, takie* Us name frbin the French word 
tailler, to cut : a tally being a piece of wood wrote upon both sides, containing an 
a€quittancc for money received ; which being cloven asunder by the depuf-cham- 
berlains, one part, called the stock, is delivered to the person who pays or lends mo- 
ney to the government ; and the other part, called the counter- stock, or counter- 
foil, remains in the office, to be kept till called for, and joined with the stock. 

This method of striking tallies is very ancient ; and has been fbund, by long expe- 
rience, to be the best way of preventing fraitds that ever was invented ; ^r it is 
morally impossible so to counterfeit a tally, but upon rejoining it with the counter- 
jfoil, the intended fraud will be obvious to every eye, either in the.notches or the 
•cleaving, in the length or in the breadth, ot in the uatural growth, or in the shape 
«f the counterfoil. ' ''^ . . ■ ;

the Clerk, of the Pells, or his under clerk, who attends to enter it in

and while the senior deputy reads one part, the junior examines the 
other part with the two clerks.

Master of the Rolh* 335 

Of the master pf the ROLLS. 

""f he Master of the Rolls is the first of the Twelv? Masters in Chan- 
cery, and he is called the Master of the Rolls, from having the cus- 
tody of all charters, patents, commissions, deeds, and recognizances, 
■which being made into rolls of parchment, gave occasion for that name. 
This repository of public papers is called the Rolls, being situated in 
Chancery -lane, and was a chapel founded for the converted Jews, 
which, after their being expelled the kingdom, was annexed for ever 
to the office of the Master of the Rolls. Here are kept all the records 
since the beginning of the reign of King Rjchard III. all prior to that 
period being kept in the Tower of London. The Master of the Rolls 
is an officer of great trust j he is always of the Privy Council j and his 
office is of great profit, though much short of what it has been. He 
Is so far an assistant to the Lord High Chancellor, as to h,ear causes in 
his absence, but does not go so far as to make a decree. By virtue of 
his office, he keeps a court at the Rolls, with two assistant Masters in 
Chancery, where he hears and determines causes that come there be- 
fore him J but his decrees are appealable to the Court of Chancery. 
His place Is in the JCing's gift j and he has the gift of the six clerks 
offices, of the examiners offices, three clerks of the petty bag, and the 
six clerks of the Rolls Chapel, hie has under him a secretary, two 
registers, and an usher. 

In Parliament-time, when he sits In the House of Lords, his place 
Is next to the Lord Chief Justice of England, upon the second wool- 
sack. ' '' " ' " '"' .' *.

Of the General Post-Office, and Postmasters- 


It is not easy to determine when the Post was first established In 
England. Anciently the management of the foreign mails was under 
the direction of a stranger ; who, by the permission of the Govern- 
ment, was chosen by the foreigners, merchants, nnd residents in the 
city of London j who even pretended to have a right by prescription 
of chusing their own Postmaster. However, in the year 1568, a dif- 
ference arising between the Spaniards and Flemings in London, each 
chose their separate Postmaster ; and this contest occasioned a repre- 
sentation from the citizens to the Privy Council, to beseech her .Ma- 
jesty, Queen Elizabeth, to fill that important post with one of her 
English subjects. From this time to the year 1660, the Posts in this 
kingdom underwent various regulations, until King Ch'arles II. that 
year, had a General Post-Office erected, to be kept within the city 
of London, under the direction of a Postmaster- General, appointed 
by the King. By this act, the Postmaster-General was empowered 
to appoint Post-houses in the several parts of the country, hitherto un- 
provided, both in post and by-roads : The postage of letters to and 
from all places therein mentioned^ was not only ascertained, but 
likewise the rates of post-horses, to be paid by all such as should ride 

The revenue of the Post in England was, in former reigns, f?irraed^ 
and continued to increase with amazing rapidity, when it was taken 
into the hands of Government j and by an act of Parliament, in the 
year 1710, it was established, not only for the kingdom of Great Bri- 
tain,^, but likewise for that of Ireland, and dominions beyond seas. 

The office of Postmaster-General is at present under the direction of 
two Commissioners, who have a salary of L.5000 per annum. They

are excluded from sitting in the House of Commons. Under their 
.orders are all the packet-boats that are established at Falmouth, in 
Cornwall, and all the Postmasters in the different towns in the king- 
dom. They are assisted by a Secretary and four clerks, a Receiver- 
General, an Accountant-General, a Comptroller- General, &c. under 
whom are a very great number of inferior officers necessarily em-

c c 3 REGENCY, 

C 390 3 


The King of Great Britain is the Sovereign and Supreme Head of ' 
the united kingdoms of England and Scotland j as he is also of Ire- 
land, and of all other the dominions belonging to the British Crown. 
He has a claim to the sovereignty of the seas environing Great Britain 
and Ireland, and the isles adjacent, as far as the shores of neighbour^ ' 
ing nations. Therefore it was formerly the custom for all foreigner^ 
to ask leave to fish and to pass in these seas, and to lower their top- 
sails to all the British ships of war. 

Our King gives place to no Monarch, except the Emperor of Ger- 
many, and that upon account of antiquity j for the Crown of Great 
Britain is free and independent. 

From the Restoration to the time of King James's abdication of the 
Crown, there was no Regency j but after King William III. came 
over, and was proclaimed and crowned, his aflfairs calling him abroad, 
his Majesty, May 5. 1695, appointed seven of the wisest and ablest of 
the Nobility, to be Guardians, Justices, and Lieutenants in England, 
during his absence. 

By a clause in an act passed in the I2th and T3th of King "William 
III. " For the further limitation of the Crown, and better securing 
the rights and liberties of the subject," it was enacted, *' That no 
person who shall come to the possession of the Crown, shall go out qf 
the dominions of England, Scotland, or Ireland, without consent of 
Parliament." But his late Majesty King George I. on his accession 
to the Throne, repealed the said clause, in these words following : 
*t And the restrictions, by the said clause meant or intended, are and 
shall be repealed, 'and sha^ll for ever be, sind be deemed and taken to 
be, void and of none effect." "'.' " ' * ' " ' 


Regents f Guardians, ^c» of Great Britain, 391 

During the reign of King William III. they were also written and 
called Guardians, Justices of England^ and his Majesty''s Lieutenants 
in the same. On Q^ueen Anne's decease, they were styled Justices of 
Great Britain. When King George I. visited his dominions abroad, 
the Prince of Wales was constituted Guardian of Great Britain, and 
iXieutenaifk in the same j and whenever afterwards his Majesty's af- 
i fairs required him to cross the seas, he appointed some of his prime 
I Ministers of State, Noblemen, and others, his Guardians and Justices 
[of the kingdom of Great Britain, and his Lieutenants in the same. 
And King George II. whenever he went to visit his German domi- 
nions during the lifetime of his Royal Consort Q^ueeii Caroline, ap- 
pointed her Majesty Queen' Regent j and, after her death, the great 
Officers of State, and others whom his Majesty could confide in, 
were appointed Regents.
